Pope Benedict In Southwark 2010...

As I said before, things are gearing up for the Papal Visit. The Southwark Archdiocese Papal Visit Team have started up their own blog, Pope Benedict in Southwark 2010, which aims to provide information and conversation about the forthcoming Apostolic and State Visit of the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI to Britain. They intend particularly to focus on the involvement of priests and laity from Southwark.

The blog is being run by two volunteers, James Blythe and Daniella Adams, and they intend to help build up a sense of what's happening using various media. They have already set up a Facebook page, My Papal Visit 2010, which is meant to compliment the official page, The Papal Visit, with a slightly more interactive and relaxed approach. Obviously James and Daniella are hoping that people will pop over and become fans of both pages.

Daniella will also be setting up a twitter feed during the visit, and will tweet regularly on the Papal events.


It's a great way to keep up with what is happening - for example, the latest wall post at the time I'm writing this on the My Papal Visit 2010 page had the message "If any young people missed on tickets to see the Holy Father at Hyde Park, comment here and we can get you one!"

They have definitely got a finger on the pulse of what is happening in Southwark - they even clocked that Our Lady of the Rosary, Blackfen has had suggestions for how to prepare for the Papal Visit. So pop on over and explore...
